Tour bus crash in Carlisle, Pennsylvania: Serious injuries reported on Pennsylvania Turnpike

(CNN) -- A bus carrying 23 people, who were members of or associated with the Seton Hill University women's lacrosse team, crashed Saturday morning in southern Pennsylvania, killing at least two people, authorities said.

The head coach of the Seton Hill University women's lacrosse team, Kristina Quigley, was identified Saturday by the Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, Department of Public Safety as one of two people killed.

She was 6 months pregnant at the time and her unborn child did not survive, the county agency said.

The other fatality was the bus driver, Anthony Guaetta.

One person died at the scene and the other at a hospital, said Megan Silverstrim, spokeswoman for Cumberland County public safety.

Everyone else is being treated at a nearby hospital for minor to major injuries, Silverstrim said.

The bus was traveling eastbound on the Pennsylvania Turnpike near Carlisle when the vehicle veered off the road, struck a guard rail, traveled 70 yards through grass and then struck a tree, said Trooper Rob Hicks, a spokesman for state police.

Silverstrim wasn't sure where the bus was headed, but the lacrosse team had a 1 p.m. match against Millersville University in Millersville, Pennsylvania, according to both teams' schedules.

Seton Hill is a Catholic university in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, outside Pittsburgh. It was founded by the Sisters of Charity in 1885.
